DS Fanboy writes: When you think about puzzle games, titles that involve abstract geometrical shapes (like Tetris) are probably the first things that come to mind. Professor Layton, though, is a different breed of puzzle game, one that you might not be used to. This charming title makes you solve actual brainteasers -- the kind that make you want to laugh and cry at the same time.
At the game's start, Professor Layton and his apprentice Luke are on their way to a town aptly called St. Mystere, because it's shrouded in mysteries. The Baron Reinhold recently died and left a puzzle in his will, saying that whoever found the Golden Apple would inherit his fortune. The Baron's wife, Lady Dahlia, hired the Professor to make sense of it all, since he's a renowned puzzle aficionado.
